Charlie Miller, thank you for reading my mind (if not my ranting post) using Ladies and Gentlemen as an example of IA's rules keeping significant portions of shows unavailable because a couple of songs from the show are commercially available. About a week after posting this complaint, your transfer of 04/29/71 was available for streaming for a day or two! And, like clockwork ,the 28th was next! Unfortunately, I was asleep at the wheel when the 27th was ripe for picking. Anyone who wants to share, I don't mind lossy and I've got a library of ~150 shows to trade. gratefuldiver11 at gmail.

5 stars and agree entirely with Evan. But, as per the other recent CM upgrades from this run, don't blink: it won't be here for long. Harvested mine (and the pre-upgrade version) from 'LLL' in all its glorious 'lossless' entirety. Can always try there once those "this show has been commercially released ........" are invoked. Yep, love the 'Bertha' and 'Help Me Rhonda, and yep, all thanks to Pig - the Dead are and always will be Pig's band.

And I am rather surprised to see it here, streamable. Thanks to CM, DG, and the Archives for allowing this incredible show.

This is something special. Hear that Bertha? That's the one on the double album released in November of that year. The rest of it is pure gold ~ and Blue Ron hanging in there on keys, lead and backup vocals. Blue Ron is why we have this music today.

And to top it off, Ron's addition to "Searchin'" just absolutely blows my mind. It is so refreshingly raw and exposing the flawness in this man, this person who is us.

Personally, even though I grew up in the heart of California at the time it was all going down, I was never a big Beach Boy fan, but several years ago a friend told me about this epic show and I could not deny it.

Since then I have become a big Beach Boys fan ~ a fan of all of them including and besides Brian Wilson, but learning an appreciation for Carl and Dennis and for their cohorts, Mike Love and Al Jardine, and all the other great musicians they had play with them. Folks, they knew how to rock.

If you understand the west coast sound you have it here personified in this eye-popping concert.

Thank you to the purveyors of this wonder-inspiring culmination of free hearts, hearts free.
